TVLine is reporting that CBS's Supergirl series has cast actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum for the recurring role of Lucy Lane for it's upcoming debut season. Dewan-Tatum's Lane is the sister of Lois Lane, and is the former girlfriend of Supergirl's Jimmy Olsen (played by Mehcad Brooks.)

In comic books, Lucy Lane debuted in 1959's Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #36, created by Otto Binder and Curt Swan. Interestingly, Lucy Lane went on to take up the mantle of Superwoman -- something that TVLine says may or may not happen in Supergirl.

Dewan-Tatum recently starred in Witches of East End and appeared in both the Step Up and Grudge franchises. She is married to Channing Tatum, who is signed on to play the X-Men's Gambit for a 2016 solo film from 20th Century Fox.

Supergirl is scheduled to debut October 26 at 8:30 p.m. EST on CBS.
